The Sausalito News began publication as Sausalito's weekly newspaper in February 1885 and continued, with slight name changes, until 1966, when it discontinued operations. From that time until 1971, Sausalito was without a local newspaper. In April 1971 the Sausalito Marin Scope began publication. It remains Sausalito's weekly newspaper.
Thanks to generous grants from the Sausalito Library Foundation and the Sausalito Historical Society, the Sausalito Public Library is able to provide digital access to scanned issues of the Sausalito News from February 1885 through December 1966. The Sausalito News ceased publication in 1966. Note: The Sausalito News was known as the Marin News from 1959 to 1965.
